We recently heard about a new theory that we don't know whether or not to believe. It says that putting an onion into your sock can be an effective way of removing toxins. Specifically, it can help you alleviate flu or cold-like symptoms. I know this sounds unbelievable, so be sure to watch the video below to find out more about this theory. 


We discovered a lot of controversy about this topic online and on social media. Some claim their grandmothers have been practicing this home remedy for years, while others call it a complete hoax. While I'm not sure what the truth actually is, I do have to say from personal experience I "feel" healthier after eating onions - whether they're raw or cooked. Perhaps it's the smell and taste of the onion that triggers other processes to occur in my body? 

It turns out that foot reflexologists tell us that our foot has nerve endings that directly connect to other organs of the body. Check this diagram out: 


Supposedly, placing the onion over the foot can then stimulate those nerve endings. Onions, therefore, have this magical healing power and are considered a natural home remedy for various illnesses. 

Have you tried to do this at home, and does it work for you?
